Prince Rupert Port Authority and Rampage team up again this year to assist Salvation Army

While Prince Rupert's hockey fans were busy celebrating the scoring punch of the hometown side over the weekend, the book keepers at the Prince Rupert Port Authority were busy doing some tallying, launching the start of another year of the Goals in Support of the Salvation Army program from Rampage home games.

Once again this year, the Port is putting their money where the puck goes, by donating 100 dollars for each Prince Rupert Rampage goal during home games in the 2015-16 season.

As title sponsor for the team the Port has provided an impressive amount of support for the local team since it rejoined the league, with game day giveaways and support for other causes affiliated with the CIHL team.

It's a partnership that has provided a significant benefit to the Salvation Army over the last few years, in the 2014 season thanks to the Rampage snipers, the Port provided a donation of $3,400 towards the Salvation Army's food bank, shelter and other community services.

The 2014 numbers were an increase from the year before when the Rampage scoring sheet provided the Salvation Army with $3,100 courtesy of the Port.

So far things are looking good to keep that increased pace moving forward, with some strong offensive play over the weekend, the Rampage are showing indications that this could be a break out year for the team in the goals for category

Something that with each home game will be of a great benefit to the community, after the first week of play in the 2015-16 season the running tally after two home games is Salvation Army 800 dollars to the good.

The Port's financial office gets a break from the spreadsheet work this week, as the Rampage are on the road taking on the Terrace River Kings on Saturday night.
